Captured by a giant! He is far too nice and jumbly. It's lucky for Sophie that he is. And the BFG is going to support her! When Sophie hears that the giants are flush-bunking off to England to swollomp a quantity of nice tiny chiddlers, she decides she should quit them once and for all. The BFG is no ordinary bone-crunching giant. Had she been carried off inside the middle of the night by the Bloodbottler, or any inside the other giants— as opposed for the BFG— she would have soon become breakfast.
Evidently not even Roald Dahl could resist the acronym craze within the early eighties. Bellowing ferret-faced golfer? And he's not actually all that B when compared with his evil, carnivorous brethren, who bully him for being such an oddball runt. Backstabbing fairy godmother? Oh, oh. BFG? Big Friendly Giant! What form of way is that for a G to behave? After all, he eats only disgusting snozzcumbers, and whilst the other Gs are snacking on little boys and girls, he's blowing happy dreams in through their windows. This BFG doesn't seem all that F at first as he creeps down a London street, snatches little Sophie out of her bed, and bounds away with her to giant land.
The BFG is 1 of Dahl's most lovable character creations. (Ages 9 to 12) Whether galloping off with Sophie nestled into the soft skin of his ear to capture dreams as though they were exotic butterflies; speaking his delightful, jumbled, squib-fangled patois; or whizzpopping for the Queen, he leaves an indelible impression of bigheartedness.
